Adopt-a-Barracks for Military Appreciation Month in May

Want to give back to your community?  Adopt-a-Barracks this spring! 

The Stuttgart Community Spouses Club Barracks Cheer Committee is organizing an Adopt-a-Barracks program where individual groups and organizations can show their appreciation for military members by adopting a barracks within U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart. Groups will be asked to provide decor, baked goods, household items (toiletries), cards, and any other goodies they would like to a specific barracks in honor of May’s Military Appreciation Month.

USAG Stuttgart Barracks Cheer hopes to have eight traditional barracks, three Bachelor Officer Quarters and four apartment buildings adopted by the end of April. The program positively impacts over 500 single service members within the Stuttgart military community.

Barracks Cheer holds quarterly initiatives to help show single and unaccompanied military personnel on garrison how much they are appreciated.

Update: The following organizations that have adopted barracks: Girl Scout Troop 593 (four barracks), Stuttgart High School JROTC, Patch Elementary School, Girl Scout Troop 525, Boy Scout Troop 154, Stuttgart Elementary School, and Girl Scout Troop 507.

There is still time to join in on showing appreciation to unaccompanied service members. For more information, contact scsc.commenhancement@gmail.com.
